Giancarlo Stanton's 41st home run of the season celebrated by landing in the bar

Gather 'round fans, there is a lot to celebrate in this post.
Giancarlo Stanton continues to be on a tear from the batter's box.
He smashed his 41st home run of the season off Rockies starter Jeff Hoffman's offering on Saturday night. The 463-foot blast means Stanton is just one home run shy of the Marlins' franchise record mark set by Gary Sheffield in 1996, when he hit 42.

There's more to the story however …
The four-time All-Star's ball landed in the bar area on the top of the left-field concourse, where the bartender grabbed it. Since he's a wonderful human being, he handed the ball off to a young fan, who couldn't contain her excitement.

That's the perfect way to celebrate.
